    why wait?

    go ahead and throw your money into the entrance fee and get some competition experience. it's fucking wonderful

    experience is great

    even the smaller tourneys are worth it, just be careful because there's always sketchy shit around.

    That's right, just go out and do it. It's a lot of fun, and you'll learn a lot about your game and what you need to work on.

    you know what, let me add though that you should at least know how to tap out. it sounds really easy but you don't want to go out there and get injured:icon_chee but if you know when to tap then i don't see why not

    Holy crap since October, and you haven't gotten your tourney cherry popped? WTF?

    I'm a three month old newb, and almost a month ago I went to my first tourney, got my ass freaking wrecked, though. However, from what you wrote, I think you can own. Go!

    Tourneys don't happen as often as they should.. just go to as many as you can afford to go to.
